 Bead Star 2009 Contest Winners 


Presenting the winners of the second annual Bead Star contest! View the 45 award-winning designs for creative inspiration.

The 2009 Bead Star contest was an outstanding success, doubling in entries from last year with over 2,000 unique submissions. Made with simple stringing, crimping and wire-working techniques, the winning pieces are featured in the 2009 Bead Star magazine, the only beading publication comprised entirely of prize-winning jewelry designs selected by beaders worldwide.

Entries were submitted into nine categories: Crystals, Heart Designs, Glass, Metals, Pearls, Plastics, Seed Beads, Stones and Under $25. The editors of Stringing and Beadwork magazines narrowed the 2,000 entries down to 20 finalists per category. From there, it was up to the 26,000 Beading Daily readers to select the 45 winning designs that ultimately made it into the all-star publication.

Fire Mountain Gems and Beads reviewed the nine category winners before choosing Silver Icicles, a spectacular necklace by Sue Sater, as the 2009 Bead Star Best in Show.

Fire Mountain Gems and Beads was once again the $3,000 Grand-Prize Sponsor of the Bead Star jewelry-making contest. The grand-prize winner received a $1,000 gift certificate from Fire Mountain Gems and Beads and an all-expense-paid trip for two to Bead Fest Santa Fe to accept the award.
